After the Solstice Parade finished I wandered around and did a few more sketches before calling it a day. Fremont has a lot of great sketching locations. You'd think a troll under a freeway would be hard to beat. Well, they have a statue of Lenin as well, and a rocket I didn't get to sketch this time. And, of course, some picturesque houseboats by Lake Union. What a great neighborhood. I'll have to come back.

Cuando terminó el Desfile del Solsticio me di una vuelta por Fremont y dibujé un par más de páginas antes de dar el día por terminado. Este barrio tiene lugares buenísimos para dibujar. Por si el trol debajo de la autopista 99 no fuera poco, también tienen una estatue de Lenin y un cohete que no pude dibujar en esta ocasión. Y, cómo no, unas pictorescas casas flotantes en Lake Union. Me encanta Fremont. Voy a tener que volver.
